We believe the greatest gift we can give the artistic community is a dancer or musician who not only has broad knowledge and strong technique, but who can apply those talents in a spirit confidence and compassion with a commitment to community service.
Dance and music can be powerful tools for developing individual leadership skills. The process of learning music and dance teaches our students to set goals, to work effectively in teams, to creatively solve problems, and a host of other character building attributes.
We recognize that only a small percentage of our students will become professional artists...while all of them will become professional people! At PSMD we are committed to helping them become the most successful people possible. We focus on a specific leadership principle and explore how applying that skill enhances our dance practice and our success in social, academic, professional, and family life.
